ID: Salmon fishing to end in parts of the Lower Salmon River

Chinook salmon fishing will close at the end of fishing on
Sunday, July 24, in the sections of the lower Salmon River from the
mouth of Shorts Creek upstream to the uppermost boat ramp at
Vinegar Creek, and from the Rice Creek Bridge upstream to the U.S.
Highway 95 Time Zone Bridge.

The two sections are being closed to reduce the catch of fish
headed upstream to the South Fork, Middle Fork and upper Salmon
rivers.

The Park Hole section of the lower Salmon River, from the Time
Zone Bridge upstream to the mouth of Shorts Creek, and the Little
Salmon River remain open. The daily bag limit remains six salmon
per day, no more than three of which may be adults; the possession
limit remains 18 salmon, no more than nine of which may be
adults.
